This little guy, Samir, was one of the first patients I wrote a profile for. His bio and picture were then uploaded to the Watsi site, where his treatment was soon funded by people like you. Check out his profile here
They say time is money, and since many folks don’t have spare cash, donating your time can be a great alternative when trying to do your part for the world.
One simple way to help people through Watsi (even if you’ve got an empty wallet) is to volunteer your time to be a patient profile writer. Each patient featured on Watsi has a short bio about them and why they need medical treatment funded. These little profiles are written by Watsi Storytelling Volunteers, using information straight from the medical partner.
If you’ve got a bit of spare time during your week (no matter the time of day), you could become a Watsi Storytelling Volunteer as well. Check out the opportunities here, or get ahold of Watsi’s Volunteer Coordinator by emailing email@example.com.
Likewise, if you haven’t got much spare time, but do have the funds, donating even as little as five dollars can really make a difference in these people’s lives. Go to https://watsi.org/welcome/within-biking-distance/within-biking-distance to view patients and send a donation for folks currently in need.
